Join us as we partner with communities in Ghana to share the power of health education!
Our team of 15 nursing students is both excited and grateful to go to Ghana for a Study Abroad Service Learning experience! We are going to areas of Ghana in the greatest need to serve and educate people in several villages, as well as work in two local clinics to learn about tropical illnesses. This will be the fourth year for the Eleanor Mann School of Nursing (EMSON) to lead this study abroad program. We will be going to different villages than visited previously as we expand our impact on the health of the communities. Critical supplies are needed to properly facilitate change as we educate communities about high blood pressure, malaria, dental hygiene, women's health, wound care, respiratory illnesses and other health issues. For three weeks, we will be providing education, leading demonstrations and offering assistance with these prominent issues in villages in Bolgatanga.
We would love to have your support as we purchase electrolyte solution, dental hygiene kits, wound care kits, women's hygiene products, malaria bed nets, coal cooking pots and flashlights for Ghanaian children. Each item serves a vital purpose in either preventing communicable diseases or improving the health of individuals.
We are thrilled to represent EMSON and the University of Arkansas while in Ghana, but we need your help! A donation of any size will help us reach our goal of $5,000. The more support we receive, the more supplies we will be able to purchase and the more opportunities we will have to invest in these communities.
Your gift today will make a difference tomorrow as we work together to improve the health of families in Ghana.
